Loader tyres

Since front-end loaders operate on rough ground, cut and wear resistance are vital and the loader tyres must provide stability for the loader body. Flotation and traction properties may also be necessary, depending on the working conditions. In certain cases, such as the wet and rough conditions of underground mines, L-4S and L-5S with smooth treads are used because of their high wear and cut resistant properties.
